Extended cables and hoses for the Super Tenere

My brother has RA and can't straighten his arms out all the way and needed risers for his Super Ten. Now his cables and hoses are too short. I didn't want to read a zillion pages of the Super Tenere thread so I'm hoping someone can help us find 2 inch longer hoses and cables. Thanks,TT

Rideonadv.com for the long clutch and brake lines , excellent service! In my research yamaha has no long throttle cables for the tenere ,the cables will have to be manufactured , I found several shops locally to me that do this , they usually just need the stock cables to replicate and will make them whatever length you need . I put on the long lines and then just readjusted the cables .


from this

I have seen the HEL and RideOnADV's kit side by side. I have RideOn's and my buddy got the HELs. I wish I bought the HELs also.

I have 2" Roxy pivots on my Tenere. Didn't need longer throttle cables. But did get the extended clutch & brake line kit from Rideonadv.com



Jaxon (owner) was very helpful and the kit was quality. He is an Avid Tenere rider himself.

Cheaper and easier to lower the seat than raise the bars. Leave the bars alone, put the seat in the low position, and have a shop cut off a couple inches in seat height. You lose the padding and such, but you are down low rider style with arms high in the air where they belong according to the common consensus of owners. Why do they sell thousands of motorcycles every year and every one of them needs the bars raised? Conspiracy, they test 100 or more bars on every motorcycle, determine the best bar, but then they don't fit that to the bike, they fit a bar 1 to 2 inches shorter and know it needs risers. This has been a major problem since 1903 when the first Harley was sold. Every one too short on the bars by 1 to 2 inches, and the basturds plan it this way.

One problem with your suggestion. The seat pan on the Yamaha is designed so that there is virtually no padding. If you turn the seat over and look at it carefully, you'll notice the pan is deeply dished leaving only about 5/8" of padding. I've been struggling with the seat (comfort issues) and made that unpleasant discovery.

I too used the 2" Rox risers with the HEL kit. The HEL kit is very nice quality stuff and I do recommend it as well. The throttle cables are long enough, but the electrical wiring is too short to go very far.

That is HORRIBLE advice on this bike. Lowering the seat also crams up your legs. It shortens the seat to peg distance and your knees start approaching fetal position.

Don't sugar coat it, give it to us straight.
